CloudBees to Showcase Kubernetes Innovation for DevOps Teams at KubeCon EU 2018

APRIL 23, 2018 – LONDON, UK – On 2 - 4 May, CloudBees will be at KubeCon EU to showcase CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise running natively on Kubernetes, and Jenkins X - the newest sub-project within the Jenkins project. CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise is an enterprise-grade continuous delivery solution for DevOps teams. Jenkins X is a new initiative spinning up within the Jenkins project that will provide a guided, cloud native, Kubernetes-based continuous integration and continuous delivery solution. CloudBees is a KubeCon sponsor and will have experts available to demo and discuss how the company enables DevOps teams to deliver Kubernetes-native applications. Stop by booth G-C07 and learn what CloudBees and Kubernetes can do to accelerate software delivery.

CloudBees has recently made Kubernetes a key part of its long-term strategy, by fully supporting Kubernetes in CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise, acquiring key Kubernetes talent and joining the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. Thanks to Kubernetes and CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise, IT organizations are now able to choose where they run their DevOps workloads (on-premise and in the cloud), with no changes required, and with the benefits of scalability, elasticity and portability.

Leading CloudBees executives will be keynoting at the conference, specifically:

  • James Strachan, CloudBees - Jenkins X: Easy CI/CD for Kubernetes (Intermediate Skill Level) (Wednesday 2nd May, 16:25 - 17:00)
    • Introduction to Jenkins X to easily setup continuous integration and continuous delivery systems on your cloud of choice using standard tools: Kubernetes, Draft, Helm, Jenkins
    • Creating new microservices or importing existing projects with automated continuous integration and continuous delivery
    • Using pull requests to trigger continuous integration, preview environments, human approval and a full continuous delivery release
    • Using automated provisioning to preview, testing, staging and production environments via Helm charts and GitOps
  • Laura Frank, CloudBees - Understanding Distributed Consensus in etcd and Kubernetes (Intermediate Skill Level) Thursday 3rd May, 11:55 - 12:30
    • The Raft consensus algorithm is at the core of etcd, allowing you to run highly available services across your Kubernetes cluster. But how exactly does quorum work, what happens when a node goes down, and how do all of the machines agree on the actual state of your services? Where is the Raft log stored, and how can you inspect it? Come away with deeper understanding of two of Raft’s main responsibilities, log replication and leader election, and be better equipped to make informed choices about your service declarations and cluster configurations.
